KARA MANN, a design firm based in Chicago and Manhattan, works with an international roster of discerning clients and industry leaders on both residential and commercial projects. The New York Times describes Kara’s signature style, a balance of sophistication and edge, as “interiors with a subversive side.”
Mann is known for creating environments that align her backgrounds in fashion, art and design by re-imagining the possibilities of spatial design. She conceives unexpected combinations through materiality and architecture with a focus on strong juxtapositions that feel simultaneously cutting edge and timeless. Mann further elevates spaces with her distinctive approach to interior architecture, and often transforms the physical structure of a space by creating dynamic compositions with a heightened sense of drama. Architecture informs Mann’s choices of palette and texture. It is this synthesis of disparate elements that showcases her balance of the classic and the experimental.
